Ray Sheldon
A modernist at heart, Ray strives for simplification by reducing a composition to its essential characteristics. The planning of colour masses is a vital key in the work, with each painting reworked many times. The negative spaces are as significant as the objects, allowing the play between the flat surface and the illusion of depth and solidity.

Katie Mawson
Katie collects vintage cloth bound books which she uses as both her palette and canvas. She is led by shapes and colours, often starting with one idea which evolves into something else along the way. Katie likes this fluidity, for her it is all about colour balance, positive and negative spaces and creating a sense of tranquillity.

Andrew Bird
Andrew is interested in the relationships of colour and contrast, as well as the interplay of forms and gestural mark-making. He works intuitively with layers being scratched and scraped back to reveal remnants of the earlier process, with elements added and removed until the composition and balance of colour, line and form is resolved.

Carolyn Genders
The essence of Carolyn's practice is the relationship of form and colour, the finished pieces uniting the physicality of working with the clay and her instinctive and often spontaneous use of colour built over many years. The works are an energetic transformation of flat surface into physical entities - emotion occupying a space, not just a 'feeling or memory'.
